We are working with a young beekeeper, Colin, located in the south-west of Corsica, in the pretty region of Balagne. This country is free from pesticides and intensive cultivation. The fauna is wild. Colin took over the beekeeping operation from his parents a few years ago, who were the first professional beekeepers to settle in Corsica in the 1970s. Colin is passionate, he practices traditional beekeeping, guaranteeing the good health of bees.
Honey is PDO with very precise specifications which highlight the respect for bees and the traceability of honey.
The flowering of the arbutus begins in November and the harvest begins towards the end of November. This honey is unknown in France. In Italy it has been in great demand for decades. It is the ultimate medicinal honey. Its antiseptic properties allow the hives to be in perfect sanitary condition before entering the winter.
